I think this is one of the most entertaining challenges on Hive, and this celebration of when English goes beautifully wrong just needs a little more exposure.
What Is #Engrish?
If you're not familiar with the word "Engrish," it is a term used for the misspelling or misuse of the English language by native speakers of Asian languages.
Although the ASEAN Hive Community is focused on Southeast Asian content, this challenge is open to all Hivers who find #Engrish anywhere on spaceship Earth.
Whether it be a menu, clothing, or even public advertisements, Engrish is everywhere if you look for it, even in native-English speaking countries where public schools have failed.
I would love to see the Engrish around you, so get out your camera and get snapping. The more Engrish you can find, the better, and I'm a sucker for a story, so tell me the who, when, where, why, and how of your Engrish findings.

Week #5 Winner(s)
1st 🥇 Place@jack.russelle
This advertisement starts out well enough, and perhaps John might even be a native-English speaking expat, but things quickly go wrong. If only people around the world had just gone ahead and said it, maybe things would've gone more in John's favor, I guess we'll never know.
2nd 🥈 Place@gabe.radke
This is another reminder of how much I enjoy #Engrish, and this is truly funny. Luckily I've lived in SE Asia long enough I understand exactly what this means, but the beauty of the mistake is not lost on me. Perhaps the box should be allowed to keep the money when it's all said and done.
